Retrospective bans for diving approved today

Ashley Young is thought to be outraged

Aye, the taking no shit off the players that they announced this season went swimmingly

Simply simply lovely

How long did the "clamping down on shirt pulling in the box" last

I'd like to see retrospective bans for poor refereeing performances.
What is the truth is neither being nor nothing, but that being does not pass over but has passed over - into nothing, and nothing into being. But it is equally true that they are not undistinguished from each other, that on the contrary they are not the same, that they are absolutely distinct

oh, and it seemingly only applies if a penalty is given or a player is sent-off....

so diving outside the box is still perfectly fine

This feels a bit like a publicity stunt to be honest. 

Will be interesting to see how it works in practice.  There are obviously some clear cut dives where punishment is fair enough, but there's also a lot which fall in to a grey area where you can't reasonably tell if a player has deliberately dived or whether what seemed like minimal or even no contact actually did cause them go to ground.  You often hear commentators accusing someone of diving because there was no contact but the player has lost their balance in avoiding getting clattered.  How will they handle stuff like this?

How far back does it go? Thinking Steven Gerrard & Luis Suarez like.

Steven Gerrard? Dive? Surely not.
He said in his book that he would never condone diving and would even berate one of his team mates for doing it.
